We are committed to excellence in the profession and it shows through the varied areas of expertise that our Faculty and Staff offer to the students. Our faculty have evidence-based teaching skillsets that promote higher-order thinking that is essential for autonomous practice in a complex and competitive environment.
This program will offer a 27-month curriculum that incorporates innovative collaborative learning experiences through community initiatives, which will promote compassionate critical thinkers and reflective graduates. Our graduates will have the necessary prerequisite skills to contribute to the profession through service, scholarship, and leadership. Our program incorporates curriculum threads for occupational justice in local, rural, and global communities. In addition, students will build skills for leadership, service, creativity, and innovation. The program will offer a dynamic 27-month academic experience that reflects excellence in occupational therapy education; preparing clinicians who not only deliver exceptional healthcare but are servant leaders in the areas of health disparities and social justice.
It would be an honor to join you in your educational journey to become a Pfeiffer OT.
